Why Boulder Medical Center Urgent Care?
Urgent Care clinics occupy a niche between the acute care services of a hospital emergency room and the physician’s office that requires an appointment. Our walk-in clinic is available as your first choice for illnesses and injuries that are not life-threatening or if your primary care provider is not available.
Unique among local urgent care centers, our clinic is staffed by physicians (mostly family practice and/or emergency room specialists), nurse practitioners, and registered nurses.
Some of the conditions our Urgent Care can evaluate and treat:
- Lacerations, fractures, and dislocations
- Abdominal pain
- Cough, asthma, pneumonia, upper respiratory infections
- Sore throat
- Ear infection
- Fevers and rashes
- Contusions and bruising
- Urinary infections
- Administering intravenous (IV) fluids

“Unbelievably efficient, friendly and expedient. From reception through vitals check through assessment, the best urgent care experience I've ever had. I realize my need wasn't the most complicated (wrenched back) but this practice is doing a lot of things right.”Gabe in Boulder, Colo.
“Best Urgent Care Center I've ever been to. Efficient check-in, helpful and friendly staff, great nurses and doctors! If you need urgent care or can't get in to see your primary care doctor, this is the place to go. Plus I called an Uber - I was there in 6 minutes and didn't even need to park. ”Patient in Boulder, Colo.
